Curious George DVD Review

Curious George DVD Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

It's monkey time as Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat climb into theaters! We review this animated adventure right here.

The Curious George movie has arrived! It's an animated comedy about a cute lil' monkey named George and his human buddy The Man in the Yellow Hat. They've been appearing in books for years, but this is their first time in a major movie and we review it right here.


Curious George - Monkey Business

The Curious George movie is all about how George and The Man in the Yellow Hat meet and save the day for a museum that's going to be turned into a parking lot. Ick. From giant monkey statues, to robot dogs, lots of chuckles, and a little bit of romance, it's an hour and a half of cartoon comedy.


Curious George - Barrel of Laughs

He's not just curious, he's cute! The lil' guy is awesome, he's always laughing at something, playing games, or just hanging out and it's fun to watch. The Man in the Yellow Hat is also voiced by the hilarious Will Ferrell who does a great job with the lovable, and slightly nerdy, guy.


Curious George - Monkey Misery

If you're looking for a movie loaded with death-defying adventure, you're searching in the wrong jungle! It's so calm you could snooze your way through the whole thing. It's also short, barely an hour and a half long.


Curious George - DVD Features

There's a ton of features on the Curious George DVD so you'll definitely be getting a good bang for your buck. PLay through more than ten different interactive games, watch 15 deleted scenes, sing-along with Jack Johnson and take an animation lesson to learn how to draw Curious George!


Curious George - Bottom Line

The Curious George movie is a very cute film with a good dose of chuckles and nothing that'll freak anybody out. It's totally a kid's movie and it's a fun way to spend a relaxing hour and a half chillin' with a monkey.


Curious George Rating: 4

    Hello and welcome to the first installment of my new series "Alpha Reviews". Whenever I see a new movie, I'll write a review of it here. Don't worry, the first part of the review will be spoiler free, and I'll make sure to give a warning when I talk more about the specifics of the movie.  Today I'll be looking at Roland Emmerich's sequel to (arguably) his greatest work, Independence Day. His original alien disaster film came out in 1996, and while it wasn't a major hit with the critics, it trounced the box office by raking in more money than any other film of that year. Over the past two decades, love for the movie has only grown, and it's now seen as the ultimate popcorn movie.  So how did the sequel hold up? Well...it's not easy to tell. On the one hand, there are some things that this movie did really well. On the other, this movie had moments that I absolutely hated. This is such a hard movie to crituique. Not because there's nothing to critique, but because there's so much right and wrong in the movie that making a final call on it is hard to do.  For one, the story is serviceable. I can buy pretty much everything that they're saying. While there are a few obvious plot holes, impeccable writing isn't what you expect from ID.  The characters vary from the fun and interesting to the idiotic and annoying. Jeff Goldblum does a great job here, and so does Bill Pullman and William Fitchener. As for the new characters? Not so much. The (arguably) two main characters are played by discount Chris Hemsworth (Liam Hemsworth), and discount Micheal B. Jordan (Jessie Usher). Neither give a stunning performance. And my goodness, there is one character in this movie who is so stereotypical and unrealistic, that it literally made me facepalm when I saw it. You'll know who I'm talking about if you've seen the movie. But, the movie is set up so that everyone gets a healthy slice of screen time, so it's okay.  The action is phenomenal, but kind of unoriginal. The first real action scene we have is the destruction of London. Know what it looks exactly like? The destruction of Paris in 2012. Know who directed 2012? Roland Emmerich. Now, I'm one of the few who enjoyed that movie, so I'm fine with it. And most of the other scenes do have a more original feel to them. But, this guy doesn't stop at copying his own movies. There's an action scene where they're on the moon, it looks exactly like Prometheus. I guess I can forgive some of this, but come on, really?  The nostalgia was WAY off the charts. I count this as a category for review because it's what old movie sequels do now. Some do it at the right amount, some don't do it enough, and some...like this film...do it all the time. Almost everything is recycled from the past movie, and there so many callbacks that it's hard to remember them all. But I will give it credit, some of them had me laughing. But, some of them made we want to scream "You're not even trying!" in the theater.  All in all? I'd say that you need to see this movie if you had any enjoyment out of the first one. But, just know that this has a lot more nonsense to put up with, even though it does give much of the entertainment value of the first one in return. I can't guarantee that you won't be disappointed, but if you go into it expecting a mix of good and bad, you'll be glad to see the good parts of a true classic film on the big screen once again.  That's it here. What were your thoughts on the movie? Who do you think gave the best performance? What did you want to see more of? Post what you think about Independence Day: Resurgence below.
